Small Accomplishments

I love small projects, although, I rarely make them. Most of my projects take weeks, if not months to complete. But a few baby quilts and a mini quilt can be finished up in no time at all!


It's quite satisfying to have a few little projects finished or nearly so. The top little project is a mini for a post-SewSouth swap that I'll be sending along in a few days. The bottom three baby quilts all need bindings, but are quilted and almost ready.

I realized as I looked at my blank design wall that I have nothing to fill it up at the moment. It don't have any WIPs to speak of and no deadlines. It's a refreshing feeling to have blank slate for a moment. I often feel bogged down by the huge list of projects I am working on. I've consciously been working through these to simplify. It feels nice to be not quite so overwhelmed.

  1. I have just made my first baby quilt and was amazed at how quickly I finished it!! Your quilts all look gorgeous in that photo - I do love a good stack of quilts! xx

  2. I have been doing the same and it feels nice to have a blank slate. As soon as I finish my daughter's First Communion dress, there are no deadlines for awhile. Breathe and create!

  6. They look great! I happen to be working on a small project at the moment with some of the jelly roll strips you so kindly gave me. My project is a lot smaller than your baby quilts, but it seems to be taking me an awfully long time!!
